Thanks to a great pitching performance from David Cervantes, the Miami Springs Golden Hawks baseball team qualified for the regional playoff... s for the first time in five years when the Hawks knocked off Norland 3-1 in a district semifinal contest at Shelly Dunkel Field on Monday afternoon and will take on Goleman on Thursday for the district title.
There have been a lot of brutal losses to district rival Goleman over the years for the Miami Springs girls softball team but last week... ;s District 15-6A championship game at Slade Park in Hialeah Gardens has to go up there right at the top of the list as Springs saw a 4-0 lead in the fifth inning turn into an 8-4 loss.
Normally, facing a four-goal deficit going into the fourth and final seven-minute period of a water polo match spells certain defeat. But no... body bothered to tell that to members of the Miami Springs High School girls water polo team last week when the Lady Hawks hosted Goleman at the Miami Springs Community Center Pool.
Kind, caring, and a leader. Those were some of the words at a recent tribute used to describe the Rev. Albert R. Schmidt, the beloved former... pastor of Grace Lutheran Church in Miami Springs who passed away in 2013 and was the subject of a dedication ceremony when the City of Miami Springs designated a portion of Curtiss Parkway as Pastor Schmidt Way.
There was a lot to celebrate last weekend as people came from near and far for the River Cities Festival but not all of the celebrating occu... rred around the Circle and Canal Street as there was an entirely different kind of celebration going on at the Miami Springs Community Center.
The City of Miami Springs Public Works cleanup crews were out in full force on Monday morning, April 14. And with good reason as another Riv... er Cities Festival was now in the books and there was plenty of cleaning up to be done as the weekend was highlighted by great weather and big crowds.
